8 Random Things: My OCD Version

Jessi tagged me with a 8 random things Meme and I thought I would put my own twist on it....
I am tagging Michele, Melissa, Nancy, Roni, and Mary. And no this doesn't make me crazy.... or does it??

  1. I have to have my toilet paper come from the bottom. If it doesn't I have to switch it. (Thanks for the idea Jessi).
  2. When stocking anything at work everything has to be facing the same direction.
  3. If I am leaving a place and I know I locked the door I have to go back and check at least once.
  4. Even though I know I put my credit card or ID back into my purse, I always have to double check.
  5. I enjoy rearranging things although my husband sees it as my way of loosing things and making it harder for him to find what he never needed before.
  6. Labeling is very necessary in my life. If I could I would label everything.
  7. I love symmetry and if possible I have to have things that way - whether that be in the houses I like or just how I arrange things; it is important to me.
  8. I have to have all of my dollar bills, credit cards etc. facing the same direction in my wallet.
How OCD are you?

Knitting to come....

Devon, having met you, I wouldn't have guessed how OCD you are ;-) You make me look like pigpen! ;-)

I do so many of those things, so we must be in the same boat! LOL

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one around here with some OCD!

Channon said...

Add one more to the list. Alphabetically, or by age, or...

SNOL!!

I have my own OCD's, I think we all do to an extreme. I am more that way at work than at home. Kids won't let me be that way.

I occasionally do the door checking thing and last night I couldn't go to sleep until I made sure the candle we had lit was actually blown out. But my grandmother was a real OCD'er. According to my dad, every night she had the same ritual. She'd go over to the oven, and while muttering "off off off off" she would mime turning off the burners (even though they were already off) and then she'd start with the doors "locked locked locked..." and this was a nightly, hour-long ritual (windows..."closed closed closed....") I think as long as it brings you comfort, it's a good thing.

Crap - somehow I missed my tag. I better get on it. I think I was distracted by your pretty socks.

Your mom didn't get a tag either. Or did I and I misplaced it? oh dear oh dear oh dear. I can tell you this: you are your mother's daughter: I do 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,and 8a. My $ has to be faced, but my credit cards...they are completely willy nilly! I guess it is saving me from that last little bit of official OCD. lol
